Curriculum and Modules

The master's program "Human Rights" is a one-year postgraduate program with a scope of 60 ECTS Credits. There are five modules, a master's thesis and a defense. Please find the structure of the respective modules of the LL.M. program below.


*Depending on the educational background of participants there are two alternative compulsory modules from which one has to be completed. For non-lawyers an introduction to legal studies will be offered. To elaborate on the combination of theoretical knowledge with practical skills, the opportunity to participate in a trial simulation (“Moot Court”) is offered for lawyers. Should participants have prior knowledge in both or in none of the two areas, the decision which of the two alternative compulsory modules to attend is subject to prior permission by the scientific director.
